this week at congressional hearings about benghazi. she fainted, hit her head on the floor and suffered a concussion. she's recovering, but she says she's not well enough to testify and she is stepping down early next year. congress will not be able to get her story until after she is no longer secretary of state. joining us now ambassador john bolton. your take on this is? >> well, i wish her the best. obviously a concussion is not a good thing at any age, but, you know, there is a phrase in international circles called a diplomatic illness that arises when something comes up you don't want to do. secretary clinton will miss this testimony on thursday, and she was also faced with a gruelling week, according to susan rice after the september 11 attacks when she couldn't go on the sunday morning talk shows. she's done a very good job of keeping herself out of the spotlight of explaining what actually happened at benghazi for months now. stuart: and yet i see no public outrage about what happened in benghazi or the lack of answers from the administration about what happened or secretary c
to testify this week at a hearing about the benghazi attacks. but while suffering from a stomach virus, secretary clinton fainted, hit her head, and sustained a concussion. doctors told her to work from home this week. and her deputies will testify in her place. she's recuperating at her home. which means some righties smell a conspiracy. the new york post called the concussion a head fake. investors business daily says it's suspicious. no one's seen a medical report. the daily caller is picking up the drum beat with a headline where's hillary clinton's medical report? the conspiracies even made it on to tv. >> every foreign service officer in every foreign ministry in the world knows the phrase i'm about to use. when you don't want to go to a meeting or concert or event, you have a diplomatic illness. and this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band. >> they're accusing the secretary of state of playing hooky. they seem to be forgetting that the house could still ask clinton to testify in the future. in fact, they probably will. the right wing has gone from asking where's the birth c
of life, which is terrible, about ambassadors that are working over in benghazi, and yet they are very, very quiet on this. >> and keep in mind, john mccain hired sarah palin to be vice president who coined the phrase, don't retreat, reload. >> that pretty much says it all. alex wagner, jonathan alter, thank you. >>> breaking news in the fiscal cliff negotiations. president obama has a counteroffer. more after this. that was ups. that was ups. and who called ups? you did, bob. i just asked a question. it takes a long time to pack a bowling ball. the last guy pitched more ball packers. but you... you consulted ups. you found a better way. that's logistics. that's margin. find out what else ups knows. i'll do that. you're on a roll. that's funny. i wasn't being funny, bob. i know. >>> government jobs taking away all guns. but that's not what i'm saying. i would just think that the founding fathers could have foreseen automatic weapons coming down the pike. i doubt it. i don't think they were thinking about that when they wrote the second amendment. people change, times change. nobody is
to secretary graham talking about the secretary and the benghazi hearing. >> when her hearing date comes she should testify as current secretary of state. she should be asked, as far as i can tell there was no interview of her in preparing this report. she needs to be asked about what she knew about the deteor eighting circumstances in benghazi. >> we should say she did not appear because she is recovering from that concussion she took as a result of a fall. but have we seen the full fallout from benghazi yet? >> not yet. there's still areas that i'm sure congress is going to want to explore. and i think that senator graham sing correct, that secretary clinton should be asked questions that she apparently was not asked during the course of the investigation. and be held accountable for them. i think that she will be. i think she will testify very forthrightly and one of those issues where, you know, you said at the top of the department and not everything comes to your attention. what the report cited was xroes inadequacies in terms of leadership and management skills at that bureau level an
service. >> do you think there's anything about benghazi that would at all taint her? >> no, i don't. not a thing. no. i mean the benghazi thing, it was a mistake, a terrible thing. we don't have actually the whole story out because the other half of the story is what the cia was doing at the annex. and that part hasn't actually been released. this was an internal look at the state department. and as any good group of people do, look tough at yourself first before you look at the interconnections with the other agencies. someone else has to look at those interconnections because this panel is a panel that secretary clinton actually appointed, former joint chiefs of staff mike mullen, tom pickering, other people like this were on this panel. they looked intensively at the department. and of course you find things wrong when you look at that, and -- but the state department has been under tremendous budgetary pressure for years. and now the challenge -- and one challenge that secretary kerry is going to have is how do you measure the effectiveness of diplomacy versus the risk to your
in benghazi and if so why? >> they did overshadow it and it continues. we had a hearing this week in foreign affairs. my republican colleagues want to continue to focus on it in a way that i think is not constructive at all. the report came out of the state department. the state department accepted responsibility and said that they should have done more. at the same time my republican colleagues also want to cut the very funding that is needed to protect the embassies around the country. so i think it is disingenuous and all about attacking president obama and the way that they torpedos susan rice. i think directing their attacks at her was inappropriate and they are still talking about it. >> democratic congress woman karen bass of california thank you very much and hop haappy holidays. >>> we will hear. a second look at the first lady and the next act for chelsea clinton. you are watching msnbc. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back i
